Into My Arms

Exhibition and Shows

15 May 2018 to 7 Jul 2018

Uncover the complexities and micro politics of a seemingly simple act – the embrace – in the free contemporary art exhibition and live performance program Into My Arms.

The action of embracing is twofold; to draw somebody or something near, and to accept an idea or change. But when expanded beyond a physical moment into familial relationships, cultural lineages, digital revelations and performative gestures, a new kind of intimacy evolves.

Into My Arms features a diverse range of local and national artists working across installation, performance, text and sound. Together, they present a range of recent work alongside a series of new commissions: from an intimate reading room to a 12-month online Periscope performance, installation, music video, large-scale drawing, archive-based performance, and an investigation into rituals of physical and emotional healing.

Curated by Toby Chapman and Frances Barrett, Into My Arms provokes the question: in a time of social and political precarity, how can an ‘embrace’ function as a form of resilience and care?
